Shot Gun Wedding is Well Underway..

It has been a whirlwind two weeks since my last post.  Where has the time gone?  I feel like I have been neglecting my updates!

Since we last spoke, I have basically finished organizing the entire wedding and marriage licence is in hand.  Yaaay me!  My last few days have been spent shopping, and more shopping.  Which is just fine with me, I love to shop and R hates it.  So with a specific look in mind for both of us, I hit the shops.

Several hours in, and many many stores later… Success!

We have our outfits from head to toe.  We are going for a spring/summer looks and rather than a traditional full suit we will be wearing navy blazers, beige pants and yellow coloured ties and pocket squares.  So we aren’t so matchy matchy, R will be in a traditional tie and I’ll be wearing a bow tie.

That brings me to my last remaining project.  I haven’t been able to find a bow tie in a pattern I like.. so I will be sewing my own and a matching pocket square.  Yes, folks I couldn’t possibly have a wedding without at least one DIY!  I found a fabric I love, so I couldn’t resist.

The one unusual thing that I will be doing, is making Doggie%20Ties-01neckties for the dogs to match our outfits.  They’ll be attending our wedding, so I don’t want them to feel left out.  If they don’t end up being neckties.. they will at least have bandanas to wear. Who doesn’t love a dog in a necktie??

Now the last thing I have jumped into, is running.  I have been inspired to drop a few pounds so I can look a tad bit slimmer for my photos.  What it has evolved into, however, is I have registered for the Manitoba Marathon.  When I take things on I tend to jump in straight to the deep end!

We are in the final stretch to the big day!
